A shotgun, also called a "scattergun," is a firearm designed to shoot a multitude of lead or steel balls of varying sizes, greatly increasing the weapon's hit potential. This makes it very effective at hunting game. However, the accuracy and power found at close range starts to diminish as the target gets farther away. Shotguns designed for the military's use are often called "combat shotguns."
Compared to the normal shotgun, it has a lower damage per second due to the lower attack speed, lower critical damage, and less ammunition per reload. It also has minor changes to health, projectiles per shot, weight, value and lacks any action points. It can not be used by the Lone Wanderer.
